UAE-based Syrian influencers Anas and Asala Marwah hosted their gender reveal party for their loved ones at one of the tallest buildings in the world – the Burj Khalifa. The couple took the gender reveal ceremony to a whole new level by hosting an extravagant party at the landmark spot in the city. While the event received mixed reviews from netizens, the video went viral.

The couple decided to announce the gender of their soon-to-be-born second child by projecting the results onto the facade of the Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai. The 163-story building lit up in pink and blue colours during the countdown and the tower finally turned to blue revealing the gender as ‘boy.’ The couple who already have a daughter reportedly spent around $100,000 (INR 73,38,000) for the grand-scale stunt, which took them more than a month to plan.

“The big news just can’t get bigger than this as the world’s tallest building lights up to reveal the biggest gender reveal ever! Congratulations @anasmarwah and @asalamaleh,” read the caption under the video that was released by Burj Khalifa on their official Instagram page.

The couple who shared the video to their Youtube channel ‘The Anasala Family,’ which has almost seven million subscribers, received mixed reviews on the video. While the video garnered millions of views and most people couldn’t contain their excitement about the event, some others criticised the couple for boasting about their wealth.

It is not known whether the event was paid for by the couple or if it was sponsored.
